By Nick Owens – Staff Reporter
The Law softball team had the bats swinging in full force this season.
The Lady Lawmen finished with a record of 9-11, which qualified them for states. They lost to Berlin in the first round 11-1.
“This year, I think our team chemistry was amazing,” senior captain Cassidy Boath said. “I’m just glad I was able to go out there and do my best to be the best captain and player I could be this season.”
The team had many memorable wins this season, including victories over Sacred Heart Academy, Lyman Hall, and Hale Ray.
Senior Maddie Murphy led the team with a .545 batting average, collecting 36 hits in 66 at-bats. Boath batted .427 with 11 RBI.
On the mound, junior Erin Harrigan had 61 strikeouts and a 4.08 ERA.
“I think we did a good job this season of showing everybody who we can be,” Harrigan said. “We had a good defense this year to back me up.”
The Lady Lawmen defense was impressive this year. Junior Skylar Bender had 49 putouts to lead the team.
“We worked really well as a team this year,” Bender said. “We worked on our game offensively and defensively and I think it paid off well this season.”
Head coach Mrs. Blude was determined to help this team succeed this season.
“The goal at the start of the year was to make states and we did that,” Blude said.
